AMD Biz Class platforms

AMD on Monday announced it will be adding Business Class platforms to its line-up of multi-core CPUs. The maker's dual-core Athlon and triple or quad-core Phenom CPUs, coupled with AMD 780V chipset and optional ATI Radeon integrated graphics support are featured in the Business Class. The benefits of the new platforms will include up to 24-month image stability when installed in first-issue desktops, and a minimum 12 months in subsequent models. Furthermore, all are energy efficient thanks to Energy Star 4.0 rating.

One of the first desktop PCs utilizing AMD's Business Class platform is the HP Compaq dc5850, also announced today and is expected to ship on May 5. Dell's PC utilizing the new chips is the OptiPlex 740. AMD also hinted its upcoming mobile platform, code-named Puma, will use the Business Class platform.

The new platforms will also give businesses the freedom of choice when it comes to software and hardware integration, as it is committed to open security standards such as TCG and DMTF as well as the latter's DASH standard.
